It finally arrived at 9am this morning, of course i started setting it up straight away. I loved my Hyundia 19″ CRT, but the new Samsung 930BF makes it look blurry and dull. The picture quality is stunning, vibrant colours and sharp edges, makes me wonder how i ever coped before, no wonder i was getting headaches from my old screen.
Setup was very easy, just plugged in the DVI cable and the power, turned it on and it worked, and in windows its just a case of choosing to extend the windows desktop across onto the second.
For anyone whos wondering, to set a wallpaper to extend across both screens set the position to “Tile”.
This is the first time i’ve properly used two screens in windows, its a refreshing experience. Being able to watch a film or episode of simpsons on one screen whilst blogging or chatting on msn. At the moment i have 2 firefox windows open, one on each screen.
I’ve only tried one game so far, the magnificent Day of Defeat. The graphics look even better, sharper and clearer and the colours look fantastic, and thanks to a response time of 4ms the is no ghosting what so ever.
I’m very happy with it, although it does make me want to buy another one to replace my CRT, but im pretty skint now!
Oh and i got a free game too: Myst V: End of Ages
